This course is designed to support teachers' understanding of Chesapeake Bay issues through participant-driven field experiences and authentic research. During this dynamic five-day residential program, participants will explore Dorchester County's coastal habitats and iconic communities by conducting field investigations and interacting with local scientists, community members, and a partnership of coastal educators from CBF, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, and the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. A key aspect of this course looks at opportunities to integrate the use of local and national environmental data into the classroom through cross-disciplinary, hands-on field activities highlighting "Chesapeake Exploration" and "Estuaries 101" curriculum.
